WALKING IN THE CANADIAN ROCKIES

Spectacular mountains and scenery to be believed!

Are you ready to be deeply enthralled by some of the most dramatic and soul stirring scenery in the world? The Canadian Rockies are the great outdoor playground of Canada. With its soaring mountain peaks sprinkled with a dusting of snow, to the many sparkling glaciers and crystal blue lakes we will explore this wonderland in the only way that offers you the very best views, on foot. Taking a breath you will be filled with the scent of fresh alpine air. Eagles soar above and moose can be seen in the distance as we take our steps through this splendid wilderness. Classic views include Athabasca Glacier, Lake Louise and the curiously coloured Peytro Lake.

Upon arrival in Vancouver, one of the most beautifully situated cities in the world, we will take time to see the sights such as the waterfront, Stanley Park, Chinatown and Gastown through to Lynn Canyon Park. After three nights in Vancouver we move on to the Cascade Mountains and Manning Park. Manning Park, named after the Chief Forrester Ernest Manning is 70,000 hectares of unspoilt wilderness. Our walks in classic mountain scenery really begin here.

We’ll get up onto ridges and peaks, see the wildlife (bear, elk, eagles, coyotes, marmots and deer may all be spotted), and enjoy clean crisp mountain air along with unparalleled views, while exploring the area near Three Brothers Mountain and Lightning Lake.

We journey from Manning Park up beside the North Thompson River to the Rockies and Jasper National Park passing Mt Robson, at nearly 4000m the highest point in the Canadian Rockies. While in Jasper we will walk into the Valley of the Five Lakes taking us past rolling hills, forests, small lakes all offering the chance to spot more of Canada’s elusive wildlife. There may also be the opportunity this splendid wilderness. Classic views include the Athabasca Glacier, to ascend The Whistlers by cable car for a summit walk. Our week however is split between not just Jasper but Banff National Park as well, in mountain scenery renowned the world over for its beauty.




WALKING GRADES


Full day walks with moderate amounts of ascent and descent. The paths are mostly good, but there may be some steep and rough ground. Walks will last up to 6 hours and could involve as much as 750m of ascent and descent. Some walks will be less demanding but equally rewarding.
